I have a problem I cannot solve on my own it seems. I am new to the forum but not to HA. However, I am not a power user like most knowledgable guys and girls here.
I like to update the IP on my subdomains via a dyndns update url my provider offers for this. I read through the forum and found some guys doing the same already using the restful command. Hence, I tried it in browser to make sure everything works fine, which it did.
I then set up the rest_command in my config.yaml and the service is available after reboot but returns a 403 status (forbidden, wrong credentials). I checked in the log why his happens and found the error. The password I send with the url contains special characters for examle “}”. However the character is not send as is but as “%7D”, which causes the transmitted password to be false. I read up on the forum and the docs, but couldnt find what to or how to do. I am sure the problem is the character set used, but I dont know how to change it. I tried content_type but couldnt get it to work.
Any help from all of you or a pointer to a ressource is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
